Welcome back to school and join us for our first event of the fall semester!
Photographer Gary Monroe will discuss his series South Beach, 1977-1986 on view at the Frost Art Museum FIU. In 1977, Monroe embarked on a decade-long project to photograph the aging Jewish community in South Beach. He had grown up around this community and sought to capture the vibrancy and slow decline of this close-knit neighborhood.
Join us after the lecture for coffee and pastelitos.
Support for this lecture provided by the FIU Holocaust and Genocide Studies Program.
